This is a sacred Tara statue in Howell, New Jersey. It is said She has spoken to people a few times in the past.

She is very holy. Just to gaze at this Tara is a blessing.

    Hi Rimpoche, I´d like to know more about this statue and her stories of the past that su mention. I have a sister who lives in NJ and I’d like to tell her more about it.

    Greetings from Peru!!!

    Thank you very much Rinpochela. What an auspicious start to my day! “Kam-sia che-che!”

  3. Andrew Chiam on Oct 19, 2010 at 10:40 am

    Thanks Rinpcohe for the posting. I would have been the world most blessed and happiest person if Mother Tara could just have said simple “hi” to me.

    Thank you for the posting. Real Bliss. Have saved Her Holy Image onto my computer, will transfer to my phone too.

    Wow – the speaking Tara! As all Tara statues are already superbly blessed, imagine one that can speak!

    We often wonder about miracles and how there is an intense lack of it now. Perhaps it is not that there are lack of miracles, but we lack the merits to actually view it, experience it or even hear it.

    How kind of Rinpoche to share this immensely scared Tara picture with us all. May we all truly make that connection with its blessed qualities and be inspired to practice Dharma even more. May we create the causes for us to view and experience miracles in our lifetime.

    Mother Tara, please guide me and remain inseparable from me forever until enlightenment is reached. Dispel all my obstacles and enable realisation to blaze up in my mind.

    This was seen at the Rashi Gempil Ling Temple in New Jersey. Looking at this statue was amazing; the grandeur, elegance, and poise portrayed by this holy Tara statue was captivating. Not only were we blessed to see this statue but we also got to see the Palden Lhamo Thangka that was at the temple. It was breathtaking knowing the story behind it. All the statues and thangkas that we have seen in all the 3 temples (Tashi Lhumpo Centre, Nitsan Temple and Rashi Gempil Ling) have been mind-blowing, and knowing that we are setting our eyes on the same items Rinpoche used to see and prostrate to gives me a feeling that I’m re-living Rinpoche’s childhood when Rinpoche used to visit these holy places. It is such an honour, an immense blessing.

    Also, I got goosebumps when I saw the Vajrayogini statue at RGL!! We thought that we wouldn’t be able to find it after our first visit there because the gen-la there didn’t know about the statue but when Anila said that the statue was still there, my heart skipped a beat and seeing it, my jaw-dropped. It was so beautiful. No wonder Rinpoche was so in awe when Rinpoche peeked at it.

    Tomorrow, we have more 2 more interviews. It’s going to be a good wrap-up to our stay at Howell, New Jersey!!

  8. Anila on Oct 19, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    I believe that Tara may have spoken to a few people in Howell, New Jersey. Howell seems to be a very peaceful suburb with people who are Buddhist inclined. And Rinpoche also has started his Dharma there. I remembered Rinpoche told me when I was in Ganden. There is a 3ft Manjushri statue in the Monastery that speaks. Although I have not heard the Manjushri statue speaks but I believe. Because in the Monastery there are lots of pujas done and children school do lots of chanting. And also High lamas conducting big pujas. A lot of energy will be generated making the statue speak. To non buddhist they may not understand this unexplained situations.

  9. patsy on Oct 19, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Wow Mother Tara that speaks! May we have the merits to receive and witness this miracles in our lifetime!

  10. Sharon Saw on Oct 19, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    This statue, like many stunning and sacred statues which speak or perform miracles throughout history, is spectacular. However, for me, what is even more stunning and miraculous is our Guru, who speaks to us as often as we would like – who advises us, who is kind to us, who cares for us, who chides us, who teaches us the Dharma and who is always always looking out for us as we stumble through our spiritual journey. That’s why when we take refuge, Namo Gurubey is first, above Namo Buddhaya, because it is very rare that a statue will speak to us or teach us the Dharma whereas that’s what our Guru will do for us until we reach Enlightenment.

  11. firefly on Oct 22, 2010 at 12:56 am

    Guru and Buddha and Yidam all the same nature… due to our delusions we break them apart… actually Tara is our Guru, Guru is Tara… only our tricky mind likes to pray to the more exalted form, mother Tara.. but her reality is the same as Guru’s reality.

  12. koh hee peng on Nov 2, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing the picture of Tara with us.

    Thank you.

  20. Edmond on Jul 16, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    A speaking Tara?! Miracle does happened still.. In the modern world now not easy to see a holy Tara like this. How blessed to hear Tara’s speech. We are even more so fortunate to have Rinpoche, a living Buddha who speak and teach us in our language. Rinpoche set up 13 departments of Kechara and bring the holy dharma to the fortunate Malaysian.

  21. Julia on Jul 16, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Wao! A Tara statue that can speak? We are talking about miracles here.. And She spoken to people for a new times! How blessed for that person being able hear the Holy Tara voice. By hearing the Tara’s voice being able to purify once bad karma. I wished I could meet this sacrad Tara and offerings to Her.

  22. Matthew Charles Bowen on Jan 13, 2014 at 8:41 am

    All flowers of universal compassion go out to you. We are in complete subjection to your voice in which we have heard. Let the Dzogchen path be clear with substance for both the living and the dead till all sentient beings realize there own compassion in divinity…vararahara

  23. Matthew Charles Bowen on Jan 13, 2014 at 8:54 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing and blessing us wth this pic. Tara here seems so alive and the way of her pose is like a very natural and relaxed unlike a rigid statue.

  26. Alice Tay on Jan 15, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    Howell, New Jersey , 这个地方对我来说真的是很陌生。。。

    如果不是Rinpoche的背景,我想我真的不会有机会知道这个地方。。

    Tara 就好像我们所知的大慈大悲观世音菩萨,一样的慈悲,救苦救难。。。

    虽然,未曾真正见过这尊Tara,不过从这照片来看,也就如Rinpoche 所说他是多么的神圣与壮严。。。

    感谢Rinpoche , 因为让我大开眼界。。。

    The highest achievements are usually done alone.~Tsem Rinpoche (Sometimes the further you move up and achieve, the less people will be around or unable to keep up. Some cannot understand, accept or wish to do more and they can drop off. Some may wish you well but cannot keep up anyways. The higher your goals, the less most are able to understand or envision. Some may be even against you. But what is important is you stay focused and consistent. After all big achievements are done by only a few and not the majority. Highest achievements are usually done alone or with a very few. Stamina, vision, consistency, focus, care, responsibility and sometimes even a sense of compassion is necessary to achieve anything big. Giving up gets us nowhere, so continuing is a good option. When you make it, some will come back, many will join and the naysayers regret and wished they had stayed. Tsem Rinpoche)

    I like when people listen to the dharma, apply and transform their minds. My methods are for you to transform your mind. If you have a better method, then by all means apply it. The issue is whether your mind is transforming or not. Don’t abandon the teachings on mind transformation blaming methods. Tsem Rinpoche

    I have a few Mother’s Tongue plants as well as Monkey Palm plants in my room to absorb the radiation that emits from prolonged computer use. My Chinese doctor is into plants, herbs and natural healing highly recommended this and I do appreciate it. I did a blog post on it for those interested… So I did some research and sure enough he is right. These days, I always have these plants in my room and they are very easy to maintain and hassle free. They do very well in the house and without direct sunlight under all temperature situations. They do not need much water either…Very easy plants to keep indoors.~ H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Mother gorilla's heart- A child fell into the gorilla cage. She broke her arms and legs and she was unconcious. A male gorilla came and tried to hurt her. Luckily, a female gorilla rescued her by chasing other gorillas away not to hurt her. This is an instinct of mother animals that take care of their babies. The mother gorilla climbed the 57 ft wall and took the girl to the zoo officer. The girl was sent to hospital and the doctor cured her. Thanks to mother gorilla's kind heart. -From FB (Please always be kind to animal. Never hurt them, kill them or eat them. Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear Andree Duckworth, Thank you very much for your feedback on our Kechara Pastors. They work very hard, they have great knowledge and very patient. I started the program so people who wish to bring dharma to others can have a lay life as well as a spiritual life recognized by others. Halfway to monk/nun-hood without being ordained. So naming them Pastors and having basic lay vows is good and it helps the public in Malaysia to identify with them easily. It worked out very much. I hope you will let them know you are benefitted by their hardwork. They will appreciate it very much as I do. Tsem R

This is a special statue of Je Tsongkapa. It was made during Tsongkapa's time by a student and offered to Him. It is said to resemble Tsongkapa very much. And this holy statue is now housed in Tashi Lunpo Monastery, Shigatse Tibet. To see, hear and contemplate Je Tsongkapa is so meaningful and collect one aeons of merits.

    They pump 'things' into poultry to make it look plump and bigger to attract you to buy. Then you eat whatever they've pumped and think how it builds up in your body? Is your taste buds worth it to risk your health? Tsem Rinpoche

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

    Gongkar is our new bird for Kechara Forest Retreat's aviary. Gongkar never had friends and the original owner could not bring him to his destination. Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche

Are you a ‪#‎species‬? Speciesists allow the interests of their own species to override the greater interests of members of other species. In each case, the pattern is identical. Though among the members of the human family we recognize the moral imperative of respect (every human is a somebody, not a something), morally disrespectful treatment occurs when those who stand at the POWER end of a power relationship treat the LESS powerful as if they were mere OBJECTS. The rapist does this to the victim of rape. The child molester to the child molested. The master to the slave. In each and all such cases, ‪#‎HUMANS‬ who have ‪#‎POWER‬ ‪#‎EXPLOIT‬ those who lack it. Might the same be true of how humans treat other ‪#‎ANIMALS‬, or other ‪#‎EARTHLINGS‬? http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=17514 Please STOP eating MEAT.
